some people will get really rich. peter: when you don't have a problem with that. john: note. so what? i would rather have people getting really rich and the poor getting richer too. that is how it works when people are free. in socialism everybody stays poor. stuart: it confers limited power on people on the elite. john: a privileged get political privilege. stuart: can we in this day and age, is there free movement of and down the scale? john: yes. maybe there is less because government education system made for less income mobility. pew research shows most of the people, children 30 years later are not in the same income group and 10% of the people moved all the way from the bottom to the top or vice versa so there is still income mobility. and is part of fairness. i don't get this hatred of this
9:48 am
market like it is a terrible selfish thing because there is in the quality. stuart: there is a hangover from the crash of 2008. wall street, red, wall street, the banks, financial institutions got a very big black eye from that crash. they got the blame. the rich got the blame. with this income inequality, blamed the rich, we have to convince income inequality scale, that is the prevailing ethic of the day and it is. john: it is and you can make an argument those rich people don't need all that money. it would be more fair if you take some away and some of them aren't going to do anything good with it. even though playboy will invest some and the bank will do something. hard to explain to people. adam smith talked about the invisible hand. it is invisible. people can see how it helps us.

cups, could mean print less money. smart phones, a trivia game called quiz up, four million downloads in a month. here is one of the 100,000 questions you could answer from hundreds of categories. this is from the royalty category. george, earl of st. andrews has us on known as blank patrick. what is his first name? we will have the answer along with one of the guys behind this popular apps. no ads on it so how will they make money? hate to ruin your day but watch out, taxpayers, take cover, here comes another bailout. for the health insurers, the insurance companies. here is my take. it won't be called a bailout but that is what it is.
9:55 am
under section 1342, the affordable care act, insurance companies will be paid extra cash, taxpayer cash if they don't bring enough money from the obamacare exchanges. the beat they will be bailed out because of the ongoing failure of obamacare. the alarm bells started ringing yesterday at 9:00 eastern when the week enrollment numbers were released, 364,000 have selected the plan, no where near on track for insurers to bring the money they require. they rang more loudly at 10:00 eastern when kathleen sebelius refused to come clean on how many young people had select a plan. getting cash out of youngsters is key to the whole scheme was so what have we got? very few signing up, hardly any paid up and total secrecy on who is signing up. that we is the groundwork for the coming bailout.
9:56 am
bear in mind insurance companies are slated to receive $1,075,000,000,000 from the taxpayer to subsidize low-income people. now they will almost certainly get a lot more. now we know why insurers were students to the esteban obamacare. they were promised millions of new customers. if that didn't happen the taxpayer would bail them out. two final points. the bailout will occur next year, election year. do you think voters will be happy with that? senator marco rubio has proposed legislation to kill section 1342, he wants to kill any insurer bailout. good for you, senator. if you kill the bailout you help kill the patient protection and affordable care act. the taxpayer i can definitely a chair for that. i saw my doctor. a blood test showed it was low testosterone, not age. we talked about axiron. the only underarm low t treatment that can resre t levels to rmal in about 2 weeks in most men.

very much. shopping malls really struggling to reinvent themselves in the age of internet shopping, amazon seems to be taking over. today we learned four of the nation's biggest mall operators are turning their properties into need distribution centers offering same-day delivery services for products bought at the mall or on line from retailers attendance at the mall. the future of the mall with brian david johnson, valued guest on this program. appreciate it. sounds to me like some operators are going to turn their properties and to amazon like distribution centers and that is the wave of the future. >> you have to remember with these small cities not that people don't like shopping anymore but how they shot is changing. how they act and interact is changing and one thing malls have is they are close and can get the goods to people quicker.

10:20 am
>> it is hyper personalization. the internet can hyperpersonalize for me specifically or you specifically, that is one of the wonderful things this technology allows is to interact with it but use distribution centers to get to you in the same day. stuart: i could do that in my own home, touch the screen, designed the thing in my own home and have it shipped to me. i don't have to go to the brick and mortar. >> one thing you can't forget about shopping is shopping his social. sometimes it is not social. sometimes mission shopping, you want to design your shoe and be done, sometimes you use shopping and entertainment, sometimes people like going and talking to people in stores and people should have all of that. it should be about choice. always bet on choice because it
10:21 am
will win. stuart: men by what they want and leave, women may brawls, maybe by and do a lot of socializing. you want to add anything to that whatsoever? >> people are more complicated than that. we are seeing different behavior is all over the world, shopping centers are always places for people to get together and the social and people will just want to go and get things done but people need that police, that platform as a place to be social. stuart: when you are right, brian david johnson, thank you very much for joining us. we are down 88 points. i say it is because of strong retail sales in november which means the federal reserve might parental less starting fairly soon. charles disagrees not entirely. charles: some are buying and selling. stuart: the guys doing the index

10:28 am
breast-feeding is important, and every woman multitasking and a lot of breast-feeding mothers sitting at home i say now i am breast-feeding but not getting pampered head to toe while i'd do it. might be a stretch. stuart: if you are in chicago you make a lot of sense. sandra smith. good stuff. moments ago we discussed the future of the shopping mall. here is the future of online shopping. let's say you see a watch in of those that is on line. tap or click watch on the screen and kiosk takes you directly to purchase what you clicked on. maybe this is the future and the ceo is here. from scandinavia, finland. what is it with you people? you set up there in the dark of winter and invent these things?

stuart: bank of america sales,
10:36 am
buy, it is up 3.5%. a couple of downgrades on oracle, down it goes 3%. the latest numbers are in just over 364,000 people signed up for health care plan under obamacare. no information release on how many people actually paid for it, no information on how many young people have signed up. insurers were promised millions under obamacare. they are not getting them. here comes the bailout. here with more. the blue dog democrat, have i got that right? >> you have got it right, happy holiday to you. stuart: do you support and insurance industry bailout? you know it is coming.
10:37 am
>> it is not a bailout, just between a way to minimize risk. for example the farm bill, congress has that. stuart: you know what i'm talking about. we will pay the insurance companies $1,075,000,000,000 of taxpayer money over the next 10 years, and now we will pay them billions more. you can call it a bailout, but we're going to pay them billions more. this is going to be very, very unpopular. do you still support it? >> again, if you're calling the risk provision in the law, it is not federal dollars. if a company has individuals they cover the 3% rule, they transfer that over to people that are little bit not as healthy as them so they plan for minimization of risk, do i
10:38 am
support bailouts? no, i don't want to see that, but again this is something that is a risk minimization provision in the law. stuart: center marco rubio says get rid of it, he does not want any more money going to the insurance companies. he has a bill that has been introduced, would you support that bill to kill further payments insurance companies? more to the point, sir, are you going to your electorate in south texas next november, are you going to go to them and say yeah, i support the it, give the insurance companies more money. do you support it? >> using your statement, the answer is no. but looking at the law, it is not a bailout. i think republicans and democrats have been wrong, they want to repeal the whole thing, democrats don't want to change one single word. i will be the first one to say
10:39 am
keep the good things that make changes or repeal modifications on the areas of the law we need to change. that is why the process could work. stuart: do you think there is much sentiment within the party and president obama for any changes at all? i don't think there is. what do you think? >> i think we have to make those changes. i was all due respects to the president, he has made some changes i think the congress should have made those changes, but working in a bipartisan way talking about this right before the holidays, we should get together, keep the good things and modify the things that are not working. stuart: i think it will happen, modification very soon. it is always a pleasure to have you on the soon, thank you. >> thank you, thank you. stuart: dan henegar, one of the sharpest critics of president obama, he is with the "wall street journal." this time he is setting his sights on bill de blasio in
10:40 am
new york city. was he listening to my take yesterday? the teachers unions are a mainstay of the democratic party in lockstep with president obama, but the times are changing and the left begins to fade, the unions realize they are out in the cold, so the amount a very noisy campaign to reclaim the promise of public education. good luck with that.

10:45 am
this in any way to paris hilton in any way, shape or form. are you buying it? charles: i am not buying it. stuart: why? charles: it was not a hot stock when it was taken over. stuart: a muted ipo debut. charles: i don't see a big pop. stuart: i don't see the enthusiasm. charles: not for hilton. stuart: new york city has 183 charter schools, located in the poorest neighborhoods. the parents believe charter schools open up opportunities. give them a path to something better. new york city mayor elect bill de blasio very critical of charter schools. parents are worried he will pull the plug on these schools. the "wall street journal" dan henegar is with us. is he going to pull the plug, is that what he is going to do? >> he wants to stop the growth of charter schools and he also
10:46 am
has said he would like to charge some of them rent for occupying space inside public school buildings. but if they charge them rent, that would be hammering their budget and probably over time the president of the schools in new york would you wrote. stuart: how big of an opinion, how big of a part of opinion does bill de blasio and anti-charter school represent? >> that is an excellent question. within active democrats within the democratic party and within people in new york, citizens regard themselves as democrats, which are most of the city. the teachers union and made federation of teachers would like to have most of these charter schools ended may and the because i want the 5000 teachers in them in the union paying dues again. the more popular they become, the fewer unionized teachers there are. the active left her campaign to
10:47 am
elect people like bill de blasio also wants to suppress the charter school, they want the charter school ended. there are children in the poorest neighborhoods in new york in the schools. this is the sort of thing liberal democrats should be in favor of, so if bill de blasio moves against these schools, i think you will see a real tension emergent side democratic politics in new york. stuart: charles, you know something about this. charles: i was involved with a south bronx classic charter school. the poorest district in america, they are from africa yesterday. i have to tell you something, the lottery system coming auditorium system is filled up. it is a godsend for these neighborhoods. it always wrapped my mind why these people would vote bill de blasio in. who would be their voice if they
10:48 am
get their way? if they shut these things down, who is going to speak up for these people? >> during the campaign you had a march across brooklyn bridge opposed to the idea of bill de blasio. 20,000 parents and children, and extraordinary thing to see. if they move against these schools, you will see more margins two marches like that. some real civil disobedience taking place, and he will try to have to push against what charles just described. stuart: how big of an influence does the teachers union, the two of them, help egg of a push to they have in the party? it used to reign supreme. are they moving backwards in terms of influence or what? >> they're moving backwards in terms of membership, and that is a big problem for them because they drive their political power almost solely from the political dues they get from headquarters. but they are still a primary
10:49 am
presence inside the democratic party, they provide money and they provide for shoulder foot . stuart: i would looking at a tragedy of those decent kids receiving education? will they shut them down, really? >> it remains to be seen. bill de blasio has to step back and say is this something he wants to bite off? this could do damage in new york city. charles: i am glad you wrote this, it will be talked about more and more particularly in the local area. it is crazy. stuart: dan henninger, sharp edge guy, appreciate you being here with us. switching topics, an a news alet for you. remember the 52-carat diamond we had on the show last week, tuesday it sold for almost $11 million, that is the king of all diamonds. i was at the auction, fascinated. that is not all from christie's.
